Lupus Dragonowl's "Against Identity Politics: Spectres, Joylessness, & the Contours of Ressentiment," originally publishd in AJODA, is read aloud by Arabella Story Tella.
This essay discusses and critiques identity politics and identity politicians and offers a different way of seeing and viewing the identities forced upon us by society and its structures. Using a Stirnerian critique, Dragonowl breaks down the thoughts, actions, and ideas of identity politics, defining them as another iteration of leftism. Full of anecdotes from the anarchist and radical milleu, this essay attempts to shed light on the workings of identity politicians.

Spot on analysis.

- That someone found it important enough to spend their time making this recording is in itself remarkable. That's the form, the content is quite unmatched anywhere and Dragonowl (and the reader) have outdone themselves. There's a liberating underlying Deleuzian spiciness, and
the references to Vaneigem and Bey are always edifying. Very nice work on a difficult topic. f.jones
